On a packed show we spoke with Melbourne dining legend Matteo Pignatelli, owner of two-hatted Matteo's, about the odd spectacle of restaurant reservations being "scalped" to high bidders due to such a high demand for Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck restaurant opening in Melbourne next year. How much would you pay for concert tickets, or an expensive seat at a sporting event? That style of dining is similar, and it's no huge surprise that people are clamoring to get a table. 

The brilliant Philippa Sibley joined us in the studio to talk about her recent travels to New Zealand. We also spoke about the Prix Fixe menu themes for both this month and next month, including a dessert that was "accidentally vegan!"

Next up we had a market report from John.

To finish this week we spoke to the head chef at Melbourne dining hot spot Mamasita, Andrew Logan. We talked about how a traditionally trained skippy Aussie ends up cooking soulful Mexican food, his travels to Mexico, and the long history of Mexican cuisine. Andrew has also contributed some recipes to an amazing tome simply titled Mexico – The Cookbook. It clocks in at 700 pages and is THE word on Mexican food.

Also the Disabled Surfers Association dates for Ocean Grove and Pt Leo for this summer, and some tips for beginners to help make sure your summer surfs are happy and harmonious. Then we’ll be interrogating Wrecks Hunter about what’s new in local marine archeology; plus, Jeff Maynard will play not his usual cheesy B-grade movie outtake, but an interview he did with ‘our’ Ted Eldred, the Victorian who (and not many people know this) played a crucial role in the development of underwater breathing apparatus.
